  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter and vegetable shortening with brown sugar, egg, vanilla extract, and maple extract until smooth; stir in flour and salt. Lightly press the dough into a 10x15-inch baking dish.
  3. Bake until the crust is set and lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
  4. Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Remove crust from oven and spread melted chocolate in a layer on top. Sprinkle with walnuts. Cut bars while still warm; let chocolate set, about 1 hour, before serving.

The first words my husband’s said after taking a bite are “these are awesome. I didn’t know chocolate would go so well with maple.” Silly man, if he was a woman he’d know chocolate goes with everything. But anyway, I followed the recipe exactly using dark chocolate chips (personal preference.) These won’t last long in this house. Thanks for sharing!

A good base recipe to which many fun flavors could be added. Tasty, but more of a chocolate shortbread than a "toffee."

Good start. Maple flavoring is a great idea! But the texture was all wrong. Adding half shortening made the bars too soft. Would have been really great to have a firm, flaky shortbread texture. All butter might be a good idea. I'll try it again that way.
